    Just took a nice closeup of my two blue "bearded ladies" today, now 23 weeks old. On the left is Charlotte, already laying, and then Silver on the right with their man, Scout, providing the black backdrop. Charlotte has a fuller beard and muffs and is the calmest one of the two girls. And then a repeat of a pic of Scout, soon to be a daddy. They have the best temperaments; I'm very pleased with them. Silver is a bit skittish, but is getting better. She actually jumped in my lap the other day because Charlotte was up there. I hope their babies have the same disposition as they do.

    Oh Wow Speckled. They are beautiful. There's something in the
    water at your place. Wow.

    Keep us posted on egg availability on those babies. Did I mention Wow?

    I can't stand it when Speckled Hen posts such nice pictures of her handsome roosters! I want one quite badly, but live in town. [​IMG]

    That Speckled Hen is such a show-off! [​IMG]

    Wolf, I'm leading the "Move Away from Town" movement. EVERYONE needs a good rooster!
    A.F., so far only Charlotte is laying. Hers started out a pretty green-blue and after a couple of weeks are more of a mint green in some lights or robins egg blue in sunlight. In either case, they are pretty eggs with a nice shape. Here is her first one:
